Despite being on holiday, the action doesn’t stop at the kennels and the guys left in charge have been brilliant in our absence. First up, both Sidarian Lisa and Rockburst Vienna will line up in next week’s Corn Cuchulainn semi finals at Harolds Cross, the only negative being they are in the same semi final! Rockburst Vienna showed brilliant early pace to lead and great determination to get her head back in front after being passed up the home straight first time round before powering on to a 2 1/2 length winning margin. Sidarian Lisa had to show her battling qualities to qualify in third place in her heat but takes her place in the semi final knowing that she’s more than capable of progressing to final, as is Vienna.
Over at Shelbourne on Saturday it was a case of seconditis for the kennels. Firstly Barnhill Turbo ran a good race to claim 2nd spot in the open 550. In the ECC Timber Products 525 Final, Sidarian Blitz was a gallant runner up before we had 2 runners progress to next week’s ECC Timber Champion 550 Stake Final. Both Eleverife and Coran Sky finished runners up in their respective semi finals.
